David Frith studied at Flintshire Technical College, Wimbledon School of Art and the Stoke on Trent College of Art, before setting up a studio in Denbigh, North Wales, in 1963. In 1975 he and his wife Margaret, also a potter, moved to the Malt House, Denbigh, and set up Brookhouse Pottery. His early work was mostly in wood-fired earthenware, but he developed his skills in oxidised stoneware, mostly thrown, and reduction glazes. He is a Fellow and ex-Vice Chairman of the Craft Potters Association. His work is well represented in public collections.
